But somewhere in Big Bear a killer is waiting to strike again. Watching for the perfect victim.
"Susan Stoker did not disappoint with Mozart’s story, she had me hooked from chapter one. Susan sends you on a journey of love, loyalty and suspense with an edge of the unknown. One of the many things I love about Susan Stoker is her characters are always strong and independent, each with their own unique personality."
"Exceeded my expectations! Mozart and Summer are beautiful together. Such a well written story. So worth the wait. My favorite so far. Can't wait for the next one!"
"I'm an avid romance reader. 2-3 books a week. I stumbled onto Susan Stoker seal team books. They are great. Nice detail in her descriptions but not over kill. The characters are strong and realistic. I'm a sucker for the one liners and dry humor. All the books are great in the series. You won't be disappointed. Can't wait for the next one!"
"Mozart and Summer's story is my favorite Protecting book yet. Customer has a way of letting her readers connect so well to her characters. And honestly, it is refreshing that some of her characters aren't jumping in the sack within just a night or two. This one wasn't near as steamy but it was real, it was sweet and emotional. I read it in one day and that is saying something for me...a working mother of three active boys who has always been such a slow reader!!!"
